COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our golden-yellow wheat beer, with its fine-pored white foam, smells of cloves and impresses consumers with its refreshing banana flavour. It is full bodied and with a smooth yeast taste. To be enjoyed at any time (always a pleasure / enjoyment), goes excellently with fish and seafood, with spicy cheese and especially with the traditional Bavarian veal sausage. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a giant head that dissipates into a cap and leaves great lacing. Strong aroma of banana bread. Had a lot of yeastiness and sweetness on the tongue. Medium bodied beer, feels thick and creamy. This is my favorite Hefe Iíve had to date.

500ml bottle. Cloudy orange with a big foamy head. Aroma is banana, yeast, lemon. Flavour is similar with some cloves thrown in for good measure.

Odd that I hadnít rated this before. Gorgeous hazy yellow gold color, not cloudy enough to hide that sparkle twirling up from the bottom of the glass. Fulsome, sticky, ice cream foam bulging over the rim of the glass. Bubble gum, ripe banana, orange creamsicle, and some green peppercorn phenolics. Soft and gently sweet but balanced by a light tangy acidity, low bitterness, sparkling carbonation on medium-full body. Simultaneously lively and creamy. That light acidity keeps it refreshing, barely. This was the sort of beer that helped convert me to variety 15-20 years ago. These days Iím almost never in the mood for a WeiŖbier... too sweet, I want more bite. But itís easy to appreciate the well-made ones.

Keg at Waterloo Tap, 20/06/17. The expected banana and cloves aroma. Itís a thing of beauty: an opaque light gold. A thick creamy head. Iíve had a stressful day so it makes me want to cry tears of joy and relief. Sweet and sour. Penny sweet foam bananas. When I get home I am going to eat a handful of cloves so I can see if thatís what the bitterness is. Medium bodied. The soft carbonation comes to the fore. Long citrus finish. Awesome.

Door ruimschoots voldoende CO2 krijgt het biertje bij inschenken een mooie schuimkraag. Ruikt lichtjes naar bananen. Smaak is fris fruitig citroen banaan en koriander waardoor verrassend rond in de mond met een mooie subtiele bittertje. Onmiskenbaar er zit in dit witbiertje meerdere dimensies door vooral die mooie ronde beetje zoetige bananen smaak. Zeker een weissbier wat je vaker wilt Hefe.

Boozygarlick (3) - West bridgford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2017 does not count
Good long lasting flavour with coriander undertones - not as overpowering as similar shop - bought bottles. Long lasting white head, cloudy gold beer. Very good and would buy again.

500 ml bottle. Cloudy yellow gold color. Thick, white mousse-like head. Yeasty, wheat malt nose hints at clove and banana. Clean, crisp refreshing wheat grain flavor. Light notes of lemon and clove on the palate are just exquisite. Very Refreshing and quite possibly the best Bavarian Weissbier in the world.

tfontana (954) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Janeís Beer and Wine. Appearance is cloudy orange-light brown with trace sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is strong banana/fruity esters, with yeasty tart, mild bubblegum, clove. Taste is fruity ester/banana, clove, yeast, wheat. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with bubbly texture, average-to-lively carbonation and mix of sweet and tart, slightly dry finish. Overall, one of the true representatives of the style.
